LG had previously announced that it would be discontinuing Android updates for the G4 and V10 and now, recent reports have revealed that LG will be blessing both these devices with Android 7.0 Nougat this year.
Launched back in 2015, both these devices have fulfilled their two major update quota. However, pleasing fans everywhere, LG announced that it will be taking these devices into Nougat on the basis of “respect for consumers’ right to choose.”
Some time back, LG revealed that it will be terminating software support for the G4 and V10 as they were “not optimized with the latest version.”
Yonhap, a Korean news agency, stated that the company had a change of heart following consumer complaints that the cancellation of future updates stands for “an infringement on their rights to choose.”
The Android Nougat update is expected to be rolled out some time in the second half of this year for the V10 devices while G4 devices will have to wait till Q3 2017 to see the update.
However, this schedule applies to the South Korean versions of these devices. A separate schedule for international models will be announced later this year.
